Epic launches patient-data-sharing platform that works without EHRs

Share this:

Epic has launched a new global interoperability platform called Share Everywhere.

Healthcare Dive reports that it lets patients “grant access to their personal data to any provider with Internet access, regardless of whether they have EHRs. Providers can also send progress notes to the patient’s primary care organization, enhancing care coordination and continuity.

“The technology builds on Epic’s Care Everywhere technology, which allows organizations to exchange patient records between Epic and non-Epic systems. Some 2 million records move about on Care Everywhere on a daily basis, according to Epic.’’

Using their smartphones, patients can forward a view of their Epic chart to any clinician. The patient determines who has access and Epic records each exchange.

Such EHR vendors as Epic, Cerner and Allscripts are all starting to accept beginning  open platforms and thus a more connected digital experience for their clients. Healthcare Dive says “The move could open the door to more novel features and capabilities in areas like population health and data sharing.’’
